L after Long Vowels Pronunciation
In this video Lisa Mojsin is teaching you another technique to make your English sound more like native speakers sound. It has to do with the pronunciation of the L consonant at word ends with preceding long vowels. Lisa pronounces the following words 2 ways – like non-native speakers and with American accent.
American [l] is not so strong as it may be in other languages. It should be weak – you lightly touch your tongue to keep it up there longer.
Dictionary pronunciation sounds here too foreign. The 2nd versions sound with an extra neutral vowel before [l].
Rehearse these sentences after Lisa.
